Woman suffers injuries in bicycle accident

A woman sustained minor injuries Tuesday afternoon when she ran into a fallen tree on Routt County Road 129 while riding her bicycle.

Steamboat Springs Assistant Fire Chief Bob Struble said the woman was riding her bike near Cullen’s Corner when a tree fell across the road in front of her.

“My understanding is that she rounded a corner and it happened so fast that she didn’t have a chance to avoid (the tree) before she went over her handlebars,” he said.

The woman was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, Struble said.

The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening, he said.

The woman’s name and hospital condition was not available Wednesday afternoon.
